Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, January 2015

With a creamy, buttery brioche nose, this is a full and mouth coating style, balancing its smooth texture with a lovely clementine orange citrus character. Fresh and vibrant on the finish.

Producer

Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet

A meticulous vigneron, Jean-Philippe's cellar was built in 2000 using stones from an old demolishedfarm house in Auxey Duresses. The ceilings were lined with Douglas fir, a deterrent against any insect invasion, and then covered in linseed oil, a non-intervening wood preservative that emanates wafts of clean, wood aromas reminiscent of cricket bats. Two chais lie at the core of his cellar - one to kick off fermentations and a cooler room to clarify the wine gently, preserving all of the natural fruit. A special 3-tier filtration system removes any chlorine, trace minerals and bacteria from the water before it is used in the winery. His painstaking attention to detail is demonstrated in his wines, which are pure and seamless. Each and every year, his wines seem to become more and more refined, concentrated and pure. This is no doubt due to his relentless reflection on how he can do better. Though most of his wines are only lieux dits, they could easily be mistaken for premier crus.

Region

Meursault, White Burgundy

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
